FAMOUS EIGHT of Spades Charles Augustus Lindbergh, nicknamed Slim, Lucky Lindy, and The Lone Eagle, was an American aviator, author, inventor, military officer, explorer, and social activist. February 4, 1902, Detroit, MI.
EIGHT of Spades: These people have a keen sense of their inherent obligation to work. They have been known to tax their health and sacrifice their loved ones in their drive to get things done. The Eight of Spades often ends up inheriting property or money from their parents or will otherwise obtain substantial help from family members. Although primarily concerned with hard work, this Card does have a higher calling. It is often considered the Healers Card. Should the 8 of Spades use their enormous spiritual energy, and the application of higher wisdom to accomplish their goals, they are sure to find their place among the great ones. Still another class of Eight of Spades will realize nothing besides their innate power. They work solely for the amount of money they can amass, and the joy of being called a "big shot"! http://www.metasymbology.com/
AQUARIUS II: The Week of YOUTH and EASE January 31-February 7: "No hassles" could be the motto of most AQUARIUS II's. Listening to those born in this week, one would gather that they do not like trouble in any form and would do practically anything to avoid it. They value their happiness highly, both in the long term and in the short. AQUARIUS II's generally ask to be left alone to travel their own path with as little interference as possible. Not much interested in controlling others or meddling in their affairs, those born in this week are happy to accord the same treatment to other people that they demand for themselves.
AQUARIUS II NOTABLE Adlai Ewing Stevenson II was an American politician and diplomat, noted for his intellectual demeanor, eloquent public speaking, and promotion of liberal causes in the Democratic Party. He received the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 1952 even though he had not campaigned in the primaries. Stevenson was defeated in a landslide by Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 1952 presidential election. In 1956 he was again the Democratic presidential nominee against Eisenhower, but was defeated in an even bigger landslide. The prominent historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., who served as one of his speechwriters, wrote that "Stevenson was a great creative figure in American politics. He turned the Democratic Party around in the fifties and made JFK possible...to the United States and the world he was the voice of a reasonable, civilized, and elevated America. He brought a new generation into politics, and moved millions of people in the United States and around the world. February 5, 1900 Los Angeles, US.

ADVICE: Try to get in touch with your own deeper feelings. Sometimes it is better to meet problems head on. A bit of pain now may prevent much more latter. Don't be too dependent on others' opinion of you. Have the courage to be yourself and don't feel you have to please or entertain.
